Do I need any previous experience in woodwork or metal work to join the LMCS?
Not at all... within our membership there is a lot of expertise so there will be people to help you. All our members will undertake a safety induction for the general workshop and any machinery you may want to use. Whenever the Shed is open, there will always be a supervisor present who can either help you or find someone else who can.
If I want to undertake an activity that the LMCS currently does not provide, what should I do?
Come and talk to us! There may be others members who are also interested, in which case we will try to accommodate your activity.
